Sega have announced that the release date for Sonic Mania for PC will now be 29th August, instead of the 15th as originally planned alongside console versions. There has been no reasoning behind the delay, although as a sign of good will, the original Sonic the Hedgehog will be thrown in for free. So that softens the blow somewhat.

In other Sonic Mania related news, the games opening animation has been released. It’s absolutely, fantastically nostalgic, reminding me of the original Sonic the Hedgehog TV series from the 90’s. Enjoy:

Sonic Mania will release on Switch, PS4, and XB1 15th August, and 29th August for PC.
